What is Cetrimonium Chloride?

Cetrimonium Chloride is a positively charged surfactant which can also be used as a conditioning agent.

What does it do for the hair?

It's typically found in conditioners and/or leave-in conditioners. It gently cleanses the hair while providing conditioning/detangling abilities, softness and making the hair smoother. Though it can cleanse the hair, it does not remove product build up. It also stops the build up of static electricity in hair, which in turn makes the hair smoother and easy to manage.
